I've currently been using a VPN service (privatetunnel) the past year since I'm working overseas and often have access issues to north america with my non-north american ip.  It's been a really good one but I'm just curious if anyone can recommend any other VPNs they think are really good?  
 
I'm looking for something in the minimum 2Mbps to 5 Mbps, $40 ish per year range or so.  Which ones have the best privacy policies?  I like the idea of some services that use SHARED IPs (difficult to trace, but it also has it's drawbacks i guess cuz some ppl will get that IP banned for doing whatever and then the rest of us can't access it).   
 
I was thinking of privateinternetaccess but undecided still as to who I should sign up with?  I'm at the time to renew my contract/buy more data usage with current vpn or look around for a better one?
 
Thanks for any recommendations.

My husband is in the FS and heading to Pakistan shortly.  We've been researching the VPN thing quite a bit lately.  The one that has come most highly recommended is StrongVPN.  If you only want to hook up one machine, you can do that.  But if you want to use wifi with multiple devices and still have a US IP and the security that goes with it, they offer a router as well.  Pricing varies.  But that's what we're going with based on recommendations from others who are posted all over the world.

Thanks, what about paying for subscription with bitcoins so that there's no trace to a real billing address?  I heard that bitcoins is an anonymous payment?  Some VPNs, that say they dont store logs or whatnot may actually still do and if a court order is issued can try to trace you by divulging your identity from the payment u made (ie. if u use cc or paypal with all ur read billing address/info on there).  Does bitcoins resolve that issue?

Nowadays there are many reliable VPN provider in industry so in order to find the best one, go online and check out the reviews for different VPN services. Make a comparison of the features, costs, security, speed, bandwidth, server location and connectivity protocol. By doing your research beforehand, you can narrow down your options to two or three VPN service providers before making a final decision.
I personally subscribed to PureVPN as it compatible with many devives include blackberry, however you can find many similar ones on google.
